      Post I just had my first "long" LD

      sooo, pretty happy cause i finally managed to stay lucid for more than 20 seconds. ive been LD for more than two years now, had lots of LD's. but i'd usually wake up after realizing i was dreaming, (reallyy frustraiting!)) until i saw this lady's video on youtube, about 'not trying too hard to stay in the dream world'. so thats basically what i did, i was in the dream world and said, "oh well, lets see how it goes, whatever". i did not do any reality checks, i just knew that i was dreaming and went with the flow.. i had complete control. i didnt know what to do, so i was just walking around enjoying the experience and my surroundings, touched a few things to see how it felt.. but it only lasted about 20 seconds. i guess i tried to open my eyes while lucid to see clearly, and that woke me up. haha. those 20 seconds were AWESOME. so pretty happy after a looong time.
      thanks, just wanted to share this with you.

      I was like you when I first started trying to LD.

      Do you usually do dream stabilization?

      I think the trick is finding a stabilization technique that works for you…this is different for everyone. For example at first for me rubbing my hands did the trick but after a little while it stopped working. For some people looking at their hands and observing the details works…for me that only makes my dream destabilize more as my hands start looking weird and warpy and fingers are really big or really small. Recently spinning has been working wonders for me. I usually spin in a circle slowly and see if that works. Sometimes I do it two or three times. If it's not working I sling really fast for a while and that can lead to a change in dreamscape or a false awakening but it keeps you lucid and from waking up. Experiment with different techniques to see what works. I even tried using pain once or twice, like poking myself with a knife all along my arm and it worked fine until I stopped poking and then I woke up lol.

      Demanding clarity works really well for me...I know that seems obvious but just after I become lucid I do a quick reality
      check or two and then say aloud "CLARITY" or "I WANT CLARITY NOW", as long as I say it with conviction it really seems to ground me.
      It has allowed me to have LD's for up to 4-5 minutes whereas before 30-40 seconds was basically my limit.
      Sometimes simplicity is the best solution

      Cheers
